Ball Is Life – Series Finale

At the beginning of the season, I caught up with Justin Jackson of the Lancaster Barnstormers to talk about joining the indy ball ranks and his new vlog Ball Is Life.

During the season, Jackson created over 20 vlogs on Youtube documenting his life in the Atlantic League. He let fans into an area that they rarely get to see with behind the scenes access, interviews with teammates, and just everyday thoughts about indy ball life.  He also included a look into his personal life and hobbies outside of baseball.

You can check out all 24 episodes of Ball Is Life on his Youtube channel – HERE.

He finished the season in Lancaster with a 3-3 record and 3.65 ERA as a pitcher and a .250 batting average in 64 at-bats.

As of yesterday, he also finished creating Ball Is Life.

He isn’t done with Youtube though – far from it actually. In the video, Jackson stated that he wanted to rebrand his vlog, have a fresh start, create even more content and “open more boxes.”

Jackson has assured me that he will let me know when the rebranding is complete. I’m excited to see what he has up his sleeve for the offseason and beyond!

Don’t miss the next chapter of Jackson’s vlogging. You can keep up with him by subscribing to his YOUTUBE CHANNEL as well as following him on TWITTER and INSTAGRAM.

On a side note (shout out!), Jackson is sporting a Mr. I Don’t Bunt t-shirt in his last vlog… a shirt inspired by the song/video from my good friend C.J. Beatty.  Check it out!
